no monkey business?!...Monkeypox continues to spread [ not going away ]......

....now 23 cases in NY metro area (was 19 few days ago), not linked to international travel.....cases in Indiana & Missouri & 2 confirmed in Houston & 1 case in Maryland....84 total now in U.S. [ cases are also increasing in Europe ]....


As more states report monkeypox, officials urge caution

....Las Vegas officials reported the first monkeypox case in that city, in a man in his 20s who traveled domestically. Maryland also said the state has its first monkeypox detection, which involves an adult who is isolating at home.

In new research developments, a Dutch team that studied 18 recently confirmed patients found a 4- to 17-day incubation period, which supports current isolation and contact-tracing guidance, but offers a bit narrower window than other estimates.

US monkeypox total climbs to 84
"Although human monkeypox is a rare infection in the United States, this Maryland case and other cases in the region and country remind us that we need to be prepared and take steps to prevent infection and its spread," said Maryland Department of Health Deputy Secretary for Public Health Jinlene Chan, MD.

"MDH will continue to work with local and federal public health authorities and communicate responsibly with Maryland residents as we learn more."

The United States now has 84 monkeypox cases, up from 72 yesterday. Nineteen states and Washington, DC, have all reported cases, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The outbreak comes as many US cities prepare for Pride celebrations this month. Most—but not all—monkeypox cases are occurring in men who have sex with men (MSM) and are linked to sexual relations.

"Be aware but don't panic," is the message touted by the Gay Men's Health Crisis and other advocacy groups, who are urging parade-goers and others to check themselves for rashes and stay home if they feel unwell.

Scientists do not yet know if monkeypox is spread via seminal fluid, but close, personal contact is likely fueling this outbreak. Many US patients are presenting with anogenital rashes, suggesting sexual contact is playing a significant role in transmission.

San Diego County also recorded its first two infections. The two cases are unrelated, but both patients traveled internationally......



cases......continue to increase.......?!

It's ability to spread is not even close to the contagion of even a simple flu virus. At this point it's more click-bait than public health threat.

Keeping Monkeypox at bay in the general population is next to impossible.

People who are at high risk or suspect that they may have been exposed would have to wear masks indoors in public spaces and wash their hands frequently or clean with hand-sanitizer, take care not to touch their faces immediately following contact with other people, and wear condoms during sex with strangers.

Think of the burden on society. Coordinating such a massive and complex response is beyond the ability of any Western government.

It doesn't need to be true if they all believe it and react as one might expect.
